HISTORY BEHIND THE WEDDING DANCE
In the days of Kings and Queens the First Dance was used to open a ball or a special event. This special occasion was led by the guest of honor. This person was typically someone very high on the social ladder or someone of royalty. The First Dance was the grand opening for the ball. It has now evolved into a tradition at our modern-day wedding. Many couples will just sway back and forth through the duration of their wedding dance. Other couples have invested resources in learning a choreographed routine or have joined a ballroom dance class to prepare for their wedding dance. Taking wedding dance lessons is becoming a tradition that more and more engaged couples are starting to do before the wedding. In addition to the First Dance, we see more and more choreographed Father Daughter dance routines.
